ASCENSION PARISH - Firefighters in Ascension needing to access a fire hydrant to put out a house fire, ran into some difficulties.
A house fire was reported before midnight at a house near Central Primary on Highway 621 in Gonzales. When firefighters arrived, the closest fire hydrant was locked inside a gate on the school's property.
Eventually, with the help of a volunteer, crews were able to get to the hydrant and put out the fire.
No injuries were reported, and no known damage to the house at this time.
